Questions to Ask When Visiting Universities By Mia Ingui

Going off to college, the most thrilling yet also most terrifying part of a teenager’s life. Although they have passed their high school classes and receive their diplomas, high school was just the beginning for many students who plan to continue their education in college. But, how is one high schooler supposed to make the hefty decision on where to live and study for the next couple of years? A way to facilitate the daunting process is to visit universities and ask questions. Most universities offer tours for incoming students or those who could possibly be interested in attending the school. These tours are about two hours long and will take the student and their family through a tour around the campus. Tour guides, who are usually currently enrolled students, provide information about everything there is to know about the school, from the food courts to the dorm rooms to the football stadiums. When the tour concludes, this is the time to ask any questions that have been unanswered. Some good questions to ask about include...

1. Any questions that apply specifically to you, for example, a question about a specific class or major that you are interested in. 2. The standardized test score required to be accepted to the school. 3. To see a specific building or classroom, for example, the theater or the gym. 4. What your the tour guide likes/ dislikes about the school. 5. Scholarships or financial aids that are given out. Asking these questions can bring you one step closer to finding the perfect school for you.
